Real Madrid are willing to offer striker Gonzalo Higuain as part of a deal to land Tottenham star Gareth Bale in the summer.

According to Spanish paper AS, Madrid aren't willing to stump up the £50 million-plus fee that could be asked for Bale, and will instead try and structure the deal to include Higuain in order to lower the price.

The paper also claim Madrid are willing to offer Bale a bumper contract, said to be worth €9 million-per-year, in order to persuade him to leave the Premier League.

Spurs are expected to be in the market for a striker in the summer, and the offer of Higuain, a prolific scorer for both Madrid and Argentina, may prove tempting.

The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for Bale in the summer as the Welshman enjoys his best season to date.

Bale has been in spectacular form this season, scoring 27 goals in 45 appearances for club and country, including 12 goals in his last 12 Spurs games.

His form has helped Spurs move to third in the Premier League and progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.

Bale has previously expressed a willingness to experience a foreign league, but penned a new contract last summer that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2016.
